I Got a Rock.... HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Hellooooooo! Happy Halloween everybody! What silly character are you imitating this year? I'm either going as a princess or a Harry Potter character :) You may think I'm a little too old for trick or treating, but I beg to differ! It doesn't matter how old you are when you go as long as you still have the spirit of a youngster in your heart. I couldn't resist making this post and adding this video to it.... This has got to be my favorite clip ever from all the Charlie Brown movies!



I sure hope you have better luck than good ol' Chuck (hey that rhymed :D) and Happy Halloween!

Tubesday: Special Halloween Edition

Since this week is Halloween..... I am sharing Michael Jackson's "Thriller."
This video is quite interesting, and if you scare easily, please don't watch it! It's a Halloween themed video and song, so obviously it's a bit creepy. My dad said this was the "big video" when he was a kid and it was the thing his generation talked about.
I had mixed feelings about using this as a Tubesday video because I don't believe in werewolves, skeletons coming up from the grave to haunt people, or any of those things and I don't want you to get the idea that I do! Honestly, the only reason I'm sharing this is because the dancing is cool and I like the Michael Jackson's teeth when he smiles at his girl! Haha.

Ok, this next part is going to be one MINOR spoiler for the video so if you don't want to read that, scroll down a ways until you find the normal font color again!
















**SPOILER ALERT**


In the video things are a paradox. First, Michael and his girlfriend are watching a movie in the theater until they walk out, but then you find out that she's actually sleeping. You have to wait for the end for the real plot twist!  


Scroll down for the rest of the post and the video!



















Enjoy the video and Happy Early Halloween :)

Question of the Day!

Hey everyone! How have your Mondays been? Mine's been normal, and thankfully I wasn't pounded with homework like I expected to be!

IMPORTANT!!!
I need at least four guest posters for November while I do NaNoWriMo! Please comment below ASAP if you are interested, and if you are, I WILL LOVE YOU FOREVER! You can post about whatever you want, as long as you run the topic by me first! Please help me! :)



Time for a random story that leads up to the question of the day, haha :P
Every morning in choir class, we have a "question of the day" where someone volunteers to pick out a folded index card and reveal the question that both the teachers would have to answer. On the first day of school we all wrote one and passed them forward to go to the bowl. Questions range from "What was your first concert?" to "Most embarrassing moment" to "Scariest experience?" and today's question was "If every day of the week was a specific color, what would they be, and why?"
I think that is such an interesting question! It's so out of the box.... :P


  • Sunday is a pastel yellow because when I think of Sunday, for some really odd reason, I think of Easter, and then I think of baby chicks.... Haha, don't ask me why. 
  • I think Monday is a dark navy blue..... Many people were saying gray, but I really disagree. Dark blue just felt right to me! I have no idea why.
  • Tuesday is probably green, no particular shade, just green. It's a little bit better than Monday, but still not great.
  • Wednesday is a orange color because it's the middle of the week. Not good but not bad. 
  • Thursday is rainbow colored. You're almost done with the week. One day left.
  • To me, Friday is pink because WHY WOULDN'T IT BE???
  • Saturday is grey because it's just a comfy day where you can sit around and watch movies while sporting a insanely warm sweatshirt. 


What do you guys think?? If every day of the week was a specific color, what would it be, and why?

Random Fridays: Costumes

Welcome to Random Fridays!

'

This is an event hosted every week by Emma!
This week it's about cool costumes and you can click HERE to visit her post!

I decided to take this post a bit of a strange way, but I couldn't resist :)

Starting off the doggie costume show we have Batdog. 
Then Porky the dog struts down the stage. 

Next up is a crowd of ghosts, modeling their pumpkin candy buckets.
This little dog is rocking the green dinosaur costume..... 

.....And right behind him is the triceratops.....
.....Who is followed by the t-rex.

This elegant peacock is strutting his stuff down the aisle. 
As slow as a snail, this turtle makes his way across. 

I saved the best two for last!

A Harry Potter impersonator has caught the golden snitch!   
And finally, we have Fluffy, being restrained by his human, Harry Potter. 

Hope you enjoyed!

Random Fridays: Best Movies of 2013

Hey guys! Welcome to Random Fridays!



This is a thing every week hosted by Emma!
This week it's about the best movies this year. I had quite a few similar ones to Emma, but I also have quite a few that she does have so let's do this! (click HERE to view her post)


Movie: The Hobbit
Release date: December 14, 2012 (Sorry I'm cheating a little..... oops)
My reaction: This was a well filmed movie and I liked the actors but I really didn't get into the plot. LOTR has never been my thing but I tried this and it was better than I thought, but still not great. Just thought it was worth mentioning.




Movie: Les Miserables
Release date: December 25, 2012 (seriously it's close enough to 2013.... cut me some slack, haha)
My reaction: this movie was amazing! When I finally convinced my mom to let me see it, I got together with Sea and Christine and I didn't really know what to expect but was very pleasantly surprised at how well it was done! All the actors/actresses did an amazing job with everything! Sadly, I have to say I didn't cry.



Movie: The Croods
Release date: March 22, 2013
My reaction: I thought this was a super cute movie, it even made me cry at the end. Sadly, it wasn't Disney Pixar..... Then it would definitely be going in my collection :)



Movie: Monster's University
Release date: June 21, 2013
My reaction: I LOVED this movie!! Probably one of the very best I saw this year..... I thought it was better than Monster's Inc. even though there was no Boo. I loved that it gave the whole back story of Monster's Inc as well. If you haven't seen it, please go rent it from your library and watch it. 


Movie: This Is Us
Release Date: Technically August 30, but I saw it on August 29, 2013
My reaction: FAVORITE MOVIE OF THE YEAR! Enough said. 



Now these are some movies I'm looking forward to that haven't come out yet!


Movie: The Book Theif
Release date: November 15, 2013
My reaction: I honestly just recently found out there was going to be a movie of this..... I have mixed feelings because I loved the book, I just don't know if I'm ready to see it visually yet. We'll have to see! I'm so glad that they are making this into a film though because it may get people to read the book which I highly recommend!



Movie: The Hunger Games- Catching Fire
Release date: November 22, 2013
My reaction: I was super excited for the first one but it was a letdown, so I'm not expecting much out of this one. They did get a new director for this, but I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing. Hopefully good! Also, I'm not appreciating the title, they should have just left it "Catching Fire". I realllllllyyyyyyy hope this one is better than the first!! 



Movie: Frozen
Release date: November 27, 2013
My reaction: I am SOOOO excited for this new Disney princess movie!! The princess's name is Princess Anna and her sister is Princess Elsa. I'm just way to excited. Watch this, it's the cutest thing EVER!



And that's it for me folks! Have a great day :)

Tubesday: "What Does the Fox Say?"

Hey! Happy Tuesday. I miss you guys commenting on my blog, so if you are reading this, comment the word "Spaghetti" down below :)

Anyway, this video by a couple of Norwegians (that's what I was told) is really quite popular in my school right now.... I don't know if you guys have ever heard of it or seen the video, but apparently everyone loves it!
My English teacher told us that it was a parody to all rock music videos about how seriously they take themselves or something, but I'm not into rock and roll that much, so I wouldn't know.
Personally, I think it's kinda weird and it creeps me out a bit but it's also really amusing to me! Haha.
